  1. Give me a break Joe the last can was warm!
  2. Is there going to be a separate landing area for swooping again this year? I will be holding try outs on Thursday night for a slot on the winning fish bowl team.
  3. Hey Joe, If we can't find the right size coconut we could always make a mold from your mouth, that always seems to be a perfect fit.
  4. Jimmy Coiner the Freefly, RW and now Swoop legend. I Can't keep up. Playing @ Eloy when we could still swoop.
  5. And why isn't the main canopy section filled out in your profile? Coming from the guy that should be 3/4 of the way to China by now as often you "Dig"
  6. No I just got a used 111 and it's not the orignal slider. The slider is a PD slider but not sure if it's the right size.
  7. Thanks, that was my next plan.
  8. I've been told that Velocity sliders are the same size on all models 79-120 is this true? If not does anyone know what the stock measurement of a Velo 111 slider is? Thanks, Nick
  9. A friend at my old DZ had the rigger make him a 2" wide strap with velcro on it. After he cacooned the canopy he would put the strap around it to hold the canopy and not allow it slide out when S-folding and he would undo the strap and take it off after he had the canopy in the bag. Although I gave him a ton of shit for not being able to pack without a crutch it seemed to work pretty well for him. Don't forget to take the strap off that would be bad. Nick
  10. I'd show up some weekends. Could probably drag a few people with me too.
  11. Yeah I guess you made it back to the grass maybe us NE boys can give you some pointers on swooping the pond!
  12. I had a rigger put a snap on my left mud flap and hook knife for $10.00 (same place as the Icon)
  13. If I where you I would hold out until you can't down size any further with that container. When I first started jumping I bought a new container and it didn't last very long because it got too big to hold the canopy I downsized to. Cold weather jumping, wear multiple layers (long t-shirts/sweatshirt under your jump suit) make use you can feel all your handles with gloves on and don't bulk on clothing so it hides your handles. Have fun freezing your ass off Nick
  14. I was in Vegas in may and I called Skydive Las Vegas they told me you have to be D licensed, have a AAD and pay a yearly membership which I think was $50.00 and then they said they will try to fit you in. go to Skydive Mesquite great group fun times

    I would have to agree with Trent, Firefly suits are the way to go I've had mine for about a year and shows no wear and Sherry is awesome to deal with, my suit with 3 colors was $260.00. Firefly is a slimmer fitting suit I'm about 220lbs out the door and I have no problem flying with the smaller people the suit has great range Nick
  16. I have around 600 jumps on mine with no plans on changing them anytime soon. But I have Dacron steering lines that I got from Precision I wouldn't use the HMA steering lines and I think all the new Xaos canopys come with the Dacron now. Nick
  17. It's actually my Dads camera I'll have to call him I think he has the camera and the tape back at the Sony repair shop. He showed it to me you can see the video and it will have black stripes pretty evenly spaced going across the screen horizontally
  18. I have a Sony TRV38 lately I have been getting lines across the video, I have cleaned the heads with a cleaning tape and also had an authorized Sony repair shop look at and clean it. I use Sony Premium tapes and the camera is in a D-Box has anyone else had problems with this model?
